Bobby Hill sings for Pope Francis at the Festival of Families

There were six families invited to speak to the Holy Father last night during the Festival of Families, representing the six continents. The Pennsylvania Girlchoir and Keystone State Boychoir family proudly represented the elusive seventh continent with the rock of Peter we brought back from Antarctica on our historic concert tour there in 2009. Bobby Hill and that stone embodied our entire organization – made up of over 600 young voices. I know the Holy Father – with the special place he holds in his heart for the under served – would especially love the fact that half of our singers are children who, without us, would have no music in their lives.

– Steven Fisher, Associate Music Director, Keystone State Boychoir

Keystone State Boychoir’s Bobby Hill sang “Pie Jesu” from Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Requiem for Pope Francis at the Festival of Families. Festival MC Mark Wahlberg told the gathering, ““That right there was truly the voice of an angel.”
